Shin came back from Paris on Saturday evening so he hired a car to drive home and to use on Sunday. On Sunday we set out for Dog Field but once we got on the motorway we realised it was a mistake because being a long weekend there was a traffic jam kilometers long! Our usual one hour trip would end up being over two hours so we decided to get off at the next exit and headed down to Yokohama instead. We parked the car and all headed down to Yamashita Koen which just happened to be hosting an international food fair. Well Jazz and Dixie were in there element with all those delicious food smells not to mention the tasty morsles they managed to score before I could get them away. Anyway Shin bought us some kebabs which we sat in the park to eat. A guy next to us put down his curry and nan to photograph it and was quite shocked when Jazz lunged for it. Obviously he doesn't know beagles! Luckily for him she didn't manage to get any. After that we took a walk down the boardwalk and on the way met a man walking a very large cat on a leash. Jazz and Dixie were very interested but not as interested as the three Sibes at the table next to the one that the cat and his owner sat down at. I was immediately reminded of our great friends at AO4, Only one red head sibe was missing! We walked along the board walk taking in the views of the marina and ending up at an October fest event which we decided to stay away from with Jazz and Dixie! All in all the weather was great and we had a nice morning in Yokohama before heading back home.

Excellent outing. Beagles are famous for doing almost anything for food! Better luck next time, Jazz!

Wow, aren't you glad for the traffic jam?! Sounds like Yokohama's food fair was a blast! Sorry you didn't get any curry, Jazz. I've tried to get my mom to give me some when she makes it and she won't. Can you believe that? "Too spicy". What does THAT mean?
Thanks for thinking of us - that Sibe looks GORGEOUS! Did you get to meet the three?
Play bows,

Hello jazz.
The same atmosphere as the port and Kobe does Yokohama.
Time to enjoy the Chinatown is glad.
Please spend a wonderful weekend. :D

International Food Fair? That was a dog heaven.
Haha, you were very quick, Jazz, you lunged for the curry and shocked the guy. Be careful, curry is very hot for your delicate tongue.
Please come visit me to share my happiness, I have to shout out loud my love, I'm deeply in love, buddy!
I'd like you to visit Dino, a friend of mine in Taiwan, the new post was about a poor pug that so touching that my eyes leaked
